Auger-Aliassime has now lost four of his last six games – all four in straight sets.
In fact, if you take away two victories against compatriot and friend Denis Shapovalov, the Canadians have lost their last ten games against top 50 players. (@AnnaK_4ever on Twitter)
How will Auger Aliassim deal with Real Madrid’s defeat?
The early months of 2021 promised a lot to Auger-Aliassime, but little has since been delivered.
The Canadian reached the final of the Murray River Open in Melbourne before dropping a set in the round of 16 at the Australian Open.
However, a two-set loss to Aslan Karatsev appeared to be a big blow to the world number 20, and he has yet to fully recover.

Madrid’s latest defeat leaves Og Aliassim with plenty to think about before the second half of the clay-court season.
At 20 years old, he is still a genius. But his 0-7 record in the final (losing all 14 sets) highlights a psychological problem that needs to be addressed soon.
Otherwise, he could be upstaged by young stars like Luther, Janick Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz.
